ATLANTA – Counties throughout Georgia are experiencing Hurricane Zeta’s impact. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported that “All across the metro area, fallen trees and downed wires have blocked interstates, disabled traffic signals and shut down surface streets.”

“Due to the weather, polls opened late. The right to vote is sacred, and voting hours should be extended so that people can have a full 12 hours of voting today as was originally scheduled,” said Andrea Young, executive director of the ACLU of Georgia.
